I know it has been a week since my last post, but it has not been in vain. We’re in our fifth day of record-warm temperatures around here; it has been unusually spring-like, and we’ve been taking advantage of it to do some serious work at the parsonage. Remember the parsonage? Others and I have been rebuilding a rotten porch from the ground up, and I’ve not forgotten how so many of you made it possible. I will try to update more frequently this week, though. A lot is going to happen this year; the future is going to be interesting.
